Speaking on his relationship with Kunle Afolayan, Wale said, ‘Kunle and I are good friends. We both share a vision for Nigerian cinema. I once saw Figurine in London. I didn’t know Kunle at that time. I made sure it was shown in a cinema in London and the experience was great and that was how we became friends.

He continued, ‘Even Phone Swap, I was not supposed to be in the movie. I just came to Kunle’s office just to chat, have Hennessy and have fun. And he said, Wale do you want to audition for this film and I said sure. That was how it happened.’
